Chemical Peels

Chemical peels must be used with great caution and expertise in individuals with pigmented skin in order to reduce the risk of hypo or hyperpigmentation.

Superficial and medium depth peels are generally safe for people with darker skin. Blotchy areas can be created from uneven absorption of the peels.

I hope that this unevenness resolves for you with time.
